It is a central survival skill; it warms us, it dries us, it makes water safe to drink, it cooks our food, it lifts morale. Discover several different ways to generate a flame without using matches including with flint and steel. Find out about collecting, preparing and using a range of tinders to get the flame going. Learn ways of getting the fire going in wet conditions, how to build the flame up into a fire you can cook and how to manage the fire from start to finish to minimise impact on the surroundings. Wear clothes you would do the garden in including waterproofs, strong footwear, midge repellant.
